Yesterday was my birthday. I have made 37 trips around the sun. Crazy. I don't feel old (mostly though I do have my days when my body has other ideas) I still feel 25 ;). I had a sweet day. Hubby made me a cake
Delish. The kids behaved. I got a really nice surprise in my email from my Aunty. I also saw my mom on Saturday. It was a really sweet birthday this year.
Now to my problem. I have been knitting along on my sweater and finished the body. Split for the front, which was finished, and was working on the back. I reached into my bag for another ball if yarn and there was only two little balls left. Weird I had a cardigan that was easily 2 sizes too big and now I wasn't even close to being done. I do have extra yarn but something didn't seem right. So I took it off the needles and held it up to really look at it.
Ok it seemed a little bigger then I calculated. I'll try it on.
Yeah I'm a little off. I didn't want a sweater dress. Here's more pictures with a shirt for reference a shirt that is slightly too big and what I was aiming for with this sweater.
Yeah. Maybe I should have checked earlier but I figured my measurements were right. Yeah. The sweater is being balled back up for a second try.
On the plus side my gauge was right. Go figure
